There just isn't enough of it

I have nothing but praise for the presentation and method. I further give extra high marks for the downloadable text (Audible should make such text availabe with every lanaguage and city guide)! My only complaint is that it does not really supply very much vocabulary. On a price/information ratio, Dr. Blair's Mandarin is better; on price/pleasure ratio, Earworms is tops.

Mandarin with a beat

This is an interesting way to learn a language. In this series (I also did the Spanish version) uses background music during the teaching of phrases. You don't speak to the beat or anything like that, but the music takes the boredom out of repeating phrases and words.

I speak Mandarin but it was 'rusty' so I tried this book. I found the lessons a good revciew but don't think it would be good at all if you don't already have some familiarity with mandarin. The two instructors are good but one has a very heavy chinese accent when she speaks english and is sometimes very hard to understand. The other instructor does not sound asian in anyway - his pronunciation of works is average but not a good role model.

The pace starts off slow then ends up going too fast (especially if you don't already speak Mandarin).

There use of music is a most intersting learning tool and if you teach languages you might want to listen just to experience the method.
